Coming of war.

The 317th Platoon. Pierre Schoendoerffer. I had to search for this one. I don’t recommend you watch this movie because you want to see a good movie. You must watch this if you are interested in the history of movies and in particular war movies. This movie is authentic in every way. No sfx or whatever. The disillusion, motivation, anger and hope of all actors is tangible. Somehow this movie feels like an Aquirre as there is a sparkle of all the young actors coming of age during the shooing of it. Three or four actors became respected actors in France and may have looked back at this as their methodacting school. I also believe that his movie influenced ‘Apocalypse Now’ in several ways. (1965)
